I just finished reading this book, which I purchased from the Science Fiction Book Club. It contains several short stories using forbidden planets as a theme. After reading the first story, “Mid-Death”, I was really excited about this book. It was probably the first graphic Sci-Fi horror story that I have read, but it was very well written with a lot of tension and surprises along the way. The rest of the book, with the exception of the story “Kaminsky at War” was pretty forgettable. The other stories were either bad or too weird for my tastes. My recommendation would be to either borrow the book or buy it used for the two stories I mentioned.
